Chris Godwin dealing with “mild” hamstring pull.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport says this was the result after Godwin had an MRI on his injured hamstring yesterday. Godwin will miss Week 4, and the Buccaneers are on a short week next Thursday night versus the Bears, so it looks like he’ll miss the next two games. Hopefully the star receiver is good to go for a Week 6 matchup against the Packers.
The 49ers signed Daniel Helm.
Helm was on the Tampa Bay practice squad, but he is now back with San Francisco as the Niners continue to deal with injuries on offense. Helm is presumably taking the roster spot left by Jordan Reed (knee, injured reserve).
The Bears promoted Artavis Pierce to the active roster.
Pierce will take the roster spot of Tarik Cohen (knee, IR), and he could eventually earn some touches behind David Montgomery. For now, the undrafted rookie is just a potential stash in deeper leagues.
The Eagles placed Dallas Goedert (ankle) on injured reserve.
Goedert is dealing with a slight fracture in his ankle that isn’t expected to cause him to miss a significant period of time, but he’ll miss the next three games at minimum while on injured reserve. Goedert is not a must-hold in redraft leagues that don’t have IR spots.
The Eagles signed Hakeem Butler.
Philadelphia is hurting at receiver and tight end, and Butler was seen by many as a first-round talent in last year’s draft before he dropped to Arizona in the fourth round—but the Eagles plan to use him at tight end. Butler is being signed off Carolina’s practice squad and will immediately join the 53-man roster for the Eagles. He remains an intriguing name to keep an eye on in dynasty leagues in particular, and the move to tight end is very interesting. Darren Waller made an extremely successful transition from wide receiver to tight end with the Raiders, so perhaps Butler can do the same.
Brett Rypien is expected to start on Thursday night, according to NFL Network’s James Palmer.
As a 2019 undrafted free agent, it’s pretty cool that he’ll now be starting in his second season in the league. Rypien is the nephew of former Redskins Super Bowl winning quarterback Mark Rypien, and he’ll make his first career NFL start in primetime to kickoff Week 4. Jeff Driskel may still get playing time along with Rypien, and neither is a highly recommended fantasy option.
Jamison Crowder (hamstring) will be limited in today’s practice.
After missing the past two games with his hamstring injury, Crowder appears to have a shot to play in Week 4. With the Jets playing on Thursday night, we’ll find out Crowder’s official status on the final injury report of the week when it’s released tomorrow.
